On Saturday, Paramore announced that guitarist Josh Farro and drummer Zac Farro -- two founding members of the multi-platinum pop-punk group -- were leaving the band, confirming speculations that hit the internet earlier in the week about the brothers' departure.

In a blog post on the band's official site, Paramore wrote : "A couple of months ago, Josh and Zac let us know they would be leaving the band after our show in Orlando last Sunday. None of us were really shocked. For the last year it hasn't seemed as if they wanted to be around anymore. We want Josh and Zac to do something that makes them happy and if that isn't here with us, then we support them finding happiness elsewhere."
